Monday Memo: Holiday Family and 20% Time

We are off to a great start for our three day week. There are no after-school activities on Wednesday. Our holiday family total is fantastic so far. We have made 2/3 of our goal and it looks like we should make or exceed it.

Our holiday family wish list is here. If anyone would like to purchase one of the items on the list, that would be awesome. Please e-mail Melissa ( or Don ( to let us know so that we don't have duplicates. Again, we really appreciate everything you are doing to help.

Our 20% Time projects are coming along nicely. This week we are working on our presentations for Pitch Day. The kids are both excited and anxious. We are going to have all of the kid work on public speaking with Mrs. Gado, one of the elective teachers here at Hixson who has great experience and expertise in this area.


  1. The Caribbean Islands are the perfect place to truly unwind and begin a journey of self-discovery. Home to some of the world's best Aruba Wellness resorts, there are hundreds of healing treatments on offer that will nurture your mind, body and soul. A place of true, natural beauty, the Caribbean boasts a diverse tropical landscape featuring mountain ranges, valleys, volcanoes and beaches. While these will provide the perfect backdrop for self-nourishment and revitalisation on a spa and wellness holiday, they simultaneously make the islands great for exploring the outdoors and getting fit through physical pursuit.

  2. High Park Residences will be accessible with Thanggam LRT Station as well as Sengkang Bus Interchange. It is also right beside Tampines Expressway (TPE). High Park Residences is also near to SEngkang Sports and Recreation Centre, Sengkang Riverside Park and Greenwich V Shopping Centre.
